Feed Me a Story: Mendy’s Cauliflower Latkes

We are posting a weekly video installment from “Feed Me a Story,” the project created by multimedia artists Theresa Loong and Laura Nova that was featured in May here. It’s part of the  FABLES Public Art project produced by FABnyc.


Here is number two in the countdown of eight recipes. The team writes: “This week, Feed Me a Story presents a continuation of our interview with Mendy Erez. In this installment, Mendy teaches us how to make cauliflower latkes with matzo meal from the neighborhood factory Streit’s.”

Along with a giant mural (at First Street Green Park) made up of photos of the eight different family dishes they selected from seniors on the Lower East Side,  the project includes videos of the residents preparing the dishes and sharing their personal histories. The featured recipes include meals made by Jewish, Italian, Chinese and Puerto Rican families based in the neighborhood.
